When times get tough, the only people you can really count on to be there are your family... and boy will they be there. I am so lucky to have the sisters (includes some non blood related sisters), parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles that I have who can come and help out when support is needed.
Despite all that is going on right now, E and I will be leaving tomorrow for Italy to visit his family, who also need him right now. I have never met his family, nor have had the chance to visit Italy during my various trips to Europe, so this will be a very exciting trip for me. We leave tomorrow night and will land in Nice, France, which is about a 30 minute drive to his city.

E's sister will meet us at the airport and we will then make the drive to San Remo, Italy where his friends, his father, two sisters, two brother in laws, three nephews and one niece live.

San Remo is a smaller Mediterranean city of about 57,000 residents located in north-western Italy on the Italian Riviera. It is described by travel guide as "a true Italian Riviera, a picturesque city located on the coast of Ligurian Sea, which is widely known as the beloved place of rest for the members of royal families and aristocrats." I can live with that :)
Depending on how things go, E has told me that we may be able to visit a couple other cities. There are so many places to visit in Italy, but because we are only there for a short time, I think I will have to choose between:
